Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena will host “The Gathering Dark,” a group event on Wednesday, Sept. 7, featuring authors Aden Polydoros, Alex Brown, Olivia Chadha, Shakira Moise, and Tori Bovalino of the book, “The Gathering Dark: An Anthology of Folk Horror,” published by Page Street Kids.
The event will be virtual, on CrowdCast, and begins at 6 p.m.
“The Gathering Dark” is about a cemetery full of the restless dead, a town so wicked it has already burned twice, with the breath of the third fire looming; a rural, isolated bridge with a terrifying monster waiting for the completion of its summoning ritual, a lake that allows the drowned to return, though they have been changed by the claws of death.
These are the shadowed, liminal spaces where the curses and monsters lurk, refusing to be forgotten. Written by New York Times bestselling authors, and other critically acclaimed authors, these stories shed a harsh light on the scariest tales that many people grew up with.
The event is free to attend. To register for the virtual event, go to https://www.crowdcast.io/e/the-gathering-dark-group.
